Trench Dogs releases their first single “A Little Overdressed” from their upcoming second album “Stockholmiana” which will be released on March 3rd, 2023
The single is accompanied by a video that was shot at “Tilt Recording Studios” in Strömstad, Sweden. This is also the studio that the band has recorded both of their albums in.
It features the band appearing as musical guests on what appears to be a late night talk show, with a not-so-professional host.
The video was shot and edited by Max Ljungberg.
A Little Overdressed” is a chaotic rock n’ roll number, juggling themes of vanity and an acceptance of one’s mortality. Big choruses, big drums, and a little tongue-in-cheek nod of self-awareness. “When I die will I, be a little overdressed for hell”? Only a fool would think they’d end up anywhere else.
Trench Dogs released their debut album Year Of The Dog in august 2018 and the plan then was to really focus on getting out on the road and play shows. But with the world grinding to a halt in 2020 those plans had to change and the band instead put their full attention to writing and recording what would become their second album.
Stockholmiana is a groovy rock n‘ roll album with songs that spans the human emotional spectrum and explore the tragedy and bliss of our strange existence.
The band expands on elements from the last album and the result is a record that mixes speedy rock n‘ roll bangers with bombastic mid-tempo tracks that are big in all the right places and raw where they should be.
Big backing vocals and drums complement melodic guitar riffs while still hitting hard with the energetic, boozy and unpolished attitude that has become the trademark of the band.
The multinational band has kept up its tradition of seeking to cooperate with people outside of their home country as the album was mixed by Harry Darling (of the band Bitch Queens) at Lux studios in Switzerland, as well as being mastered by producer Al Scott in England.
Stockholmiana has all the best parts from their previous releases but still sees the band moving forward and evolving.
Martini adds:” This album as well as our new cooperation with Wild Kingdom is the band taking it up a notch, and having a label like Wild Kingdom to stand with us as we do that is a great thing.
